CTC280 – Casing a new Catalogue Cover

I hope you have had a crafty weekend. I had a day off on Monday and I managed to do 4 crafts in one day!! Talk about best day ever!! I did some card making, diamond painting, crocheting and some paper piecing hand sewing.

Are you as excited as I am for the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue!! I’m not sure I’m ready for Christmas yet but I am starting to get excited for the Christmas goodies in the catty.

Our challenge this week is to case the cover of the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue.

My favourite Christmas colour combo is red and green, so I love this cover! I decided to case the circle box on the bottom left, however I’ve made a card instead.

I am loving the Poinsettia Place suite, which includes the Poinsettia Petals stamp set and Poinsettia dies. I love the stamps and the dies and the options you have with them. You can stamp the petals and die cut them or you can die cut the petals and then emboss the veins.

I stamped and cut out the flowers in Real Red and the leaves in Shaded Spruce. I also cut out the holly in gold foil to match the Wonder of the Season Specialty DSP that I used in the background.

I curved the petals of the flowers using a bone folder to add a bit more depth to them. I was going to add some gold metallic thread but I totally forgot until I was finished!

Next up is the lovely Sandra in New Zealand.

We would love to see your creation casing the cover so please share over on at our Facebook group.

Happy Stamping

CI82 – It’s a late entry!

I missed the start of the latest Colour Inkspiration Challenge. Before I knew it, the deadline to join had passed!! But luckily, it’s a 3 week challenge so there is still another week for you to join in.

It’s another gorgeous combination – Just Jade, Melon Mambo, Basic Black and Whisper White.

Isn’t that photo amazing!! Wouldn’t you want to have a bath in that groovy bathroom!!

I wanted to use the Poinsettia Place Suite from the August – December 2020 Mini Catalogue which starts tomorrow!! I just love the Poinsettia dies and how they emboss the cardstock as well as cut out the shapes. I used the Old World Paper embossing folder on the Whisper White piece. I then cut out 2 each of the smaller flowers from the dies. As the photo had that interesting gold artwork on the wall, I decided to add some gold sprigs as well as Just Jade sprigs. I used my bone folder to curve the petals of the flowers to add a bit of dimension and then assembled them using glue dots.

The sentiment is stamped in Just Jade and is cut out using the Stitched Rectangle dies.

I’m usually a traditional Red/Green Christmas colours person, but I really like this very non-traditional combo!! What do you think?

I’d love to see your creation using this colour combo, so please share over on at our Facebook group, here.
